in the latest nightly builds, TSVN correctly finds that the link points
to a file and the repository browser will then show the content of the
parent folder of that file. Of course, the users will still see all the
other files in that folder.

You could use links like this:
tsvn://svn://servername/projectname/docname.doc
instead. That will open up the checkout dialog for that url.

If you want to open the link in a webbrowser, you'd have to implement an
asynchronous pluggable protocol handler
(http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa767743(VS.85).aspx) for the
svn protocol (and if you're at it, the svn+ssh protocol as well).
